Lorraine: Making Apps Is Fun, Especially With New Friends At Cornerstone OnDemand

What’s more fun than using apps? Making your own. Over the weekend of 9th & 10th September 2017 we descended on Cornerstone OnDemand’s central London offices for an app hackathon – Cornerstone App Hackathon.

Lorraine, 9, said:
I was really looking forward to my fourth Stemette event because I was actually going to build my own app. It was at Cornerstone’s offices in London and I was sooo excited I just couldn’t wait to get there as we had travelled in from Essex.
I recognised a lot of people from the last Hackathon and couldn’t stop smiling. I got to work with Lillia, Kimi and Ruby. We worked together to create an app called Make A Mate and presented it to the judges. It was a fab day making new friends and eating lots of yummy snacks too!
